The Composerworks’ collaboration with CBeebies began back in 2012, the year the company was set up. Composer Paul Honey produced music to assist with the development of Old Jack’s Boat.

Paul recorded the score for both series of the show with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra – setting a precedent for a CBeebies show score. The show is 2014 Bafta nominated in 2 categories and the recipient of a 2014 Bafta award for best original live action series. The latest programme in the Old Jack’s Boat series which Paul has scored, this time with the National Orchestra of Wales, is Rockpool Tales which began airing in 2015 on CBeebies.

Another large-scale CBeebies show commission for The Composerworks was The Furchester Hotel. Composer team Marten Joustra and Andy Blythe scored the 52 x 11 Sesame Workshop/CBeebies co-production. The second and third seasons are currently in production and will be scored by Andy and Marten. It broadcasts later in 2016 internationally.

It began transmitting n the UK in the Autumn of 2014. It is broadcasting globally on Sesame Street’s YouTube channel and via other international broadcasters in the coming months.

Composers Banks & Wag are scoring a new internationally broadcast CBeebies series Go Jetters (52 x 11) which launched in October 2015.

Composers Paul Drew and Ellie Wyatt have scored Feeling Better (26×14) for CBeebies (2018).
